Sarah Graves piles on problems for Jacobia "Jake" Tiptree to solve in the re-located Wall Street executive's eighth mystery. Jake now lives in Eastport, Maine--"so far downeast that it's almost Canada." She spends her time fixing her old house and offering home repair hints for do-it-yourself buffs. However, small-town charm isn't exempt from big-city crime, and Jake finds herself tangled up in murder, money-laundering, and blackmail. Narrator Lindsay Ellison deals efficiently with ex-cons, ex-husbands, ex-girlfriends, and a housekeeper suffering from CCD--compulsive cleaning disorder--brought on by stress. Ellison switches from standard speech to a downeast accent without slipping into caricature. She's especially winning as Jake copes with exploding radiators, long-lost relatives, and moose puke in her kitchen. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
